If everything turns out true, the price difference between the downsized EOS R version called EOS RP and the A7 III which is loved by critics would be only $200. Oh man.
I thought about purchasing a Sony 7 24 MPix model 2nd hand to reuse my FD lenses for fun. But staying in the Canon system @ just 1500 EUR for a camera which is fully compatible with my lenses and gives me a control ring around my lenses (mostly primes) is absolutely welcome if it turns out true. So no complaints here.
And cameras do not have to be loved by critics but by photographers!
